After September 30th, free forms of Meet will be restricted to gatherings no longer than an hour.

“We don’t have anything to impart with respect to changes to the promotion and progressed highlights lapsing,” a Google representative disclosed to The Verge in an email Friday. “On the off chance that this changes, we’ll make certain to tell you.”

Under the expansion, anybody with a Google record could make free gatherings with up to 100 individuals, and with no time limit.

Likewise disappearing September 30th are admittance to cutting edge highlights for G Suite and G Suite for Education clients, including permitting gatherings of up to 250 members, live-floods of up to 100,000 individuals inside a solitary space, and the capacity to spare gathering chronicles to Google Drive. Those highlights are ordinarily just accessible to clients on the “undertaking” level of G Suite, which costs $25 per client every month.

Google Meet and other videconferencing stages have been pursuing the brilliant ascent of Zoom during the Covid pandemic, with Meet passing 100 million day by day members back in April.
